  • TV Ad Pegs The Droid Bionic For September 8 Release

    TV Ad Pegs The Droid Bionic For September 8 Release

    The Droid Bionic has been a long time coming. It was originally announced back in January at CES and it’s now September, but we’re willing to forgive the incredibly annoying wait for that dual-core LTE magic. Especially since it’s been all but officially confirmed that we’ll be seeing the Bionic on shelves on September 8. Read More

    Gartner, IDC: Windows Phone To Steal Second Place From iOS By 2015

    Based on its history, you probably wouldn’t expect to see Windows Phone take off like a rocket. But apparently that’s what it’s going to do. Research out of Gartner and IDC says that Microsoft’s platform may grab a whopping 20 percent of the market by 2015, with the help of hardware partners like HTC and a little extra effort in the marketing department.

  • Report: Intel To Kill MeeGo Development “Temporarily”

    Report: Intel To Kill MeeGo Development “Temporarily”

    It’s a tough environment out there for an OS. But a few have risen to the top of the food chain — most obviously iOS and Android. And at the very bottom, like an orphaned and endangered baby buffalo, sits MeeGo. Nokia has already fled from the burning platform, but now its only remaining parent, Intel, has reportedly decided to temporarily discontinue development of MeeGo. But for… Read More

  • Sprint: AT&T/T-Mobile Merger Would Destroy Jobs, Here’s A Study To Prove It

    Sprint: AT&T/T-Mobile Merger Would Destroy Jobs, Here’s A Study To Prove It

    It’s no surprise whatsoever that Sprint isn’t down with the AT&T/T-Mobile merger, and with good reason. There’s no telling just how severe the effects of this deal may be on Sprint, but we know for sure that it won’t be good. So with no other option, the carrier has campaigned against the merger since day one. We’ve seen statement after statement, release… Read More

  • Samsung Unveils Dual-Core Galaxy Tab 7.7 And 5.3-Inch Galaxy Note

    Samsung Unveils Dual-Core Galaxy Tab 7.7 And 5.3-Inch Galaxy Note

    Size matters. Don’t let anyone tell you different. Samsung understands this, and has thus tried to build a tablet for just about any size pocket or backpack you may own. We all know about the GalTab 10.1 and 8.9, but today even smaller models join the pack. At the IFA conference in Berlin, Samsung today announced the Galaxy Tab 7.7 and the 5.3-inch Galaxy Note. And if some size… Read More

  • Samsung Introduces A Trio Of New Cameras

    Samsung Introduces A Trio Of New Cameras

    This morning at the IFA conference in Berlin, Samsung took the stage to announce three new cameras. Sometimes new cameras are about as boring as old cameras, but that’s not the case here. We were lucky enough to go hands-on last night at Samsung’s preview event in New York city, and all three of these puppies have somewhat of a “wow factor.” I’ll be honest when I… Read More

  • Apple Offers Refurbished iPad 2 Models At $50 Discount

    Apple Offers Refurbished iPad 2 Models At $50 Discount

    There isn’t much about an iPad 2 that would lead you to hesitate before buying, except maybe a glance down at the price tag. Today, that’s slightly less of an issue. Apple has started to sell refurbished iPad 2s in its online store, although it looks as though the 16GB models aren’t currently available. The refurbs are only discounted $50 from the original pricing, but a… Read More

  • AT&T Responds To DoJ: The Facts Will Prevail In Court

    AT&T Responds To DoJ: The Facts Will Prevail In Court

    Following today’s reports that the U.S. Department of Justice has filed a complaint opposing the $39 billion acquisition of T-Mobile by AT&T, the big blue carrier has issued a response stating plans to ask for an expedited hearing “so that the enormous benefits of this merger can be fully reviewed.” The DOJ cites antitrust issues in its complaint, saying… Read More

  • Sony Ericsson Announces The Xperia Arc S Smartphone

    Sony Ericsson Announces The Xperia Arc S Smartphone

    Today at the IFA conference in Berlin, Sony Ericsson announced its new Xperia smartphone, the Xperia Arc S. Unfortunately, details were pretty sparse in the initial announcement, but here’s what we do know: The phone will first be available in October of this year.

  • Apple May Have A Web-Based Diagnostics Tool In The Works For iStuff

    Apple May Have A Web-Based Diagnostics Tool In The Works For iStuff

    If ever your iPhone or iPad starts acting wonky, chances are you pack it up and head on over to your nearest Genius Bar. It’s a hassle, but it’s a small price to pay for your beloved iStuff. Still, ease of use is one of Apple’s key standards for a device, and that extends way past a navigable interface. That said, Hardmac is reporting that Apple has internally announced a… Read More

  • Is Sprint’s Early Termination Fee Jumping To $350? (Update: Confirmed)

    Is Sprint’s Early Termination Fee Jumping To $350? (Update: Confirmed)

    This whole system of two-year contracts and early termination fees is far and away the worst thing about owning and enjoying a smartphone. Granted, contracts reduce the actual price of the phone by quite a bit, but it’s still super annoying to sign on with some brand new superphone only to have some super-duper phone launch a few weeks later. And if the contract itself wasn’t… Read More

    Hands-On: Samsung’s Galaxy S II For AT&T, T-Mobile, And Sprint

    Since February, we’ve been waiting for our turn with the Galaxy S II. With the handset floating around Europe and Asia, it’s been hard to remain patient. But today is the day: the U.S. versions of the Samsung Galaxy S II are here and we’re ready to get up close and personal at Samsung’s media event in NYC. Just how different are the U.S. versions from the international? Read More

  • Nokia Needs Help Choosing A Name For Its Windows Phone 7 Handsets… Go!

    Nokia Needs Help Choosing A Name For Its Windows Phone 7 Handsets… Go!

    More often than we’d like, phones are announced with absolutely horrifying names. Acer’s beTouch, the Casio G’zOne Commando, and the HTC ChaCha all fall hard into that category. They leave you wondering what went down in the conference room where that name was born, and what could have possibly been going on in the minds of the people who approved them. But honestly… Read More

    If you’re looking for a solid Android handset with a physical QWERTY keyboard, Motorola has a few nice offerings on the table.

    Epson Brings Its iPrint App To Android

    Though the digital world seems to be swallowing print alive, there are still some documents that you just want to hold in your hand. But with the speed and ease at which we share information these days, it’s hard for printing to keep up as far as convenience goes. Epson’s tried to find a way to make printing as quick and painless as possible with its iPrint app, which has… Read More

  • Samsung Introduces A Trio Of Bada-Powered Wave Smartphones

    Samsung Introduces A Trio Of Bada-Powered Wave Smartphones

    Today is a big day for Samsung. If you haven’t heard, the phone maker is unveiling the U.S. variants of its flagship handset, the Galaxy S II, tonight in New York (and you can bet we’ll be in attendance). But if that weren’t enough, Samsung also announced three new Bada-powered smartphones today, and each brings something special to the table. Read More

    Isis: AT&T, Verizon, And T-Mobile’s $100 Million Gamble In Mobile Payments

    NFC will be ubiquitous one day, but we still have quite a ways to go. Unlike other smartphone features, this requires adoption on a huge scale from just about everyone, which will definitely take a while. But we are getting closer. While Sprint fiddles with its Google Wallet, Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile have reportedly made plans to invest upwards of $100 million in their joint-venture… Read More

    Samsung May Buy webOS, Recruits Former HP Exec

    When HP decided to kill off webOS, most people were more concerned with who would snatch up the PC business that went tumbling down the trash chute alongside it. A few options were thrown out, but most bets were placed on Samsung, who’s reportedly been looking to outsource some notebook orders. Little did we know, Samsung may be interested in grabbing webOS, too. Read More

  • Apple Continues To Block The Galaxy Tab 10.1 In Australia

    Apple Continues To Block The Galaxy Tab 10.1 In Australia

    The Apple-Samsung drama has been rather quiet in Australia compared to the clamor it’s created in Europe until today when Apple alleged that the Australian version of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 is also infringing Apple patents. Samsung had originally tried to circumvent the Australian GalTab injunction on the basis that it was the version intended for the U.S., and that the Australian variant… Read More

  • Samsung Galaxy S II U.S. Variants Pose For The Camera

    Samsung Galaxy S II U.S. Variants Pose For The Camera

    We’ve heard quite a bit about the Galaxy S II, which isn’t all that surprising seeing that it sold 3 million units in its first 55 on the market. As people from other parts of the globe got to experience the wonder that is the GSII, we here in the States played the waiting game. But it’s so close I can almost taste the Gingerbread. On August 29, Samsung will finally unveil… Read More
